The food was amazing and great value. Both we would absolutely recommend this class to anyone (beginner or advanced cooks). Fantastic experience and thanks for making our time special in Taipei.
We loved our cooking class with Wayne and Ginger! Our class started with a brief tour of a local market where we were introduced to new fruits and herbal teas. Our class consisted of making three dishes and made-from-scratch bubble tea. We made some amazing memories and will definitely do another class with Wayne and Ginger when we visit Taipei again!
Anotther fantastic activity experienced in Taipei. I'm always baffled on the many tours/ activities you can experience here. This was very worth your time and money. You can experience making from scratch the famous Xiaolongbao. The teacher of our class was so ftiendly, uplifting, energizing, accomodating, captivating, and also good at English. She guides you all the way. Its step by step and simple. I'm planning to join the other classes in my next visit. So glad I joined this activity. Very convenient how the building is just outside to the right of that MRT exit too. Join it. =) you enjoy and eat your dishes after too.
This was honestly the main highlight of my trip to Taiwan. They ladies were SO sweet and kind. Everything was so clean, organized and informative. We also got some knowledge about the history behind the food and ideas for later when we were travelling around Taipei after. Definitely a must do at the beginning of your trip!
I had a great time there! Their cooking class was so much fun and they shared a lot of knowledge and Taiwan culture. They brought us to Kuang Fu Traditional Market to buy some ingredients and we had some snacks :) The team was great especially Angela, Vivian, Maggie, and the other 2 ladies were so incredibly helpful and friendly. If you are in Taipei and looking for new experience, this activity would suitable for you. Definitely worth every money you paid, we cooked 4 dishes, (Beef noodles, Xiao Long Bao, Bubble Milk Tea, and 1 side dish) the service was satisfying and you had new experience cooking all these goodness!
I've always wanted to take a cooking class, when I've traveled abroad and I finally decided to pull the trigger in Taipei. This cooking class was very fun, rewarding and delicious. Everything is well managed. You meet at the cooking studio (which is pristine and very nice) and then you go to the local market to get some local ingredients. They take you on a tour of the local market and they were very informative. After your market tour, you go back and cook the food. They are so well detailed, have amazing energy and really break down how to make the dishes step by step. I enjoyed every minute again and I would love to come back.
